    Does anybody know anything about the Reeder grinder? This new RPS101 i found on youtube looks awesome. It comes stock with the ability to go horizontal and the tool rests etc. just change with it. And all for $500? Almost too good to be true. Looks pretty boss. It looks like it's machined aluminum and built, pretty well ( i watched a youtube review on it, the guy loved it) but i wanted to check with you guys.

    I hadn't heard of it. Looks like a decent grinder though. All those cool attachments can add up pretty quickly, i suspect. In the video he said something about $1300 (USD, I assume) without the motor or the wheels. That's getting pretty pricey, in my opinion. That said, any tool you use a lot is worth the money.

    The guy who reviewed it in youtube got the grinder, the platen attachment, the 10" wheel, the bevel guide, the sharpening jig and an extra tool arm from the maker. He added a motor, a vfd, aluminum wheels, the mini roller set from OBM and... i think that may be it. It cost him $2200. To me, that's outstanding for all that stuff. The cost of a motor and a vfd alone can be most of half that cost. A 10" wheel is crazy expensive too. If i needed a new grinder (which will basically be whenever i can afford it - or think i can), i'd jump at this setup. IF it proves to be a quality item. It seems pretty rock solid when he's running it.
